CANTON, MA — The office of Pro-Link, a JanSan-focused marketing and buying group, are now 100 percent wind-powered, according to a press release.
The company has purchased Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) to help promote renewable, low-carbon and no carbon energy technologies and sources such as wind power, the release stated.
Mike Nelson, vice president of marketing for Pro-Link, said: "In addition to Pro-Link’s efforts to promote Green cleaning, we are also trying to reduce our company’s overall environmental footprint. Our [office’s] use of wind power instead of electricity from conventional sources is similar to planting 284 mature trees or not driving 64,026 miles."
Pro-Link hopes their move toward full sustainability will be a guide for other companies to follow, the release noted.
In the United States, there are two main markets purchasing RECs for renewable energy sources: Compliance markets, such as government offices, which are required to derive a certain percentage of their electricity from RECs and voluntary markets, such as Pro-Link, desire to go green and be more environmentally responsible, the release added.
